US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that the terrorist organization “ISIS” still poses a great threat, a year after the elimination of its leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
Pompeo added, in a written statement, published by the US State Department on Monday: “As we celebrate this important achievement in the war against ISIS, the work of the international coalition (led by the United States) to combat terrorism is still far from complete. It is imperative that we continue to put pressure on ISIS remnants in Iraq and Syria, and continue to strengthen our collective efforts to defeat ISIS cells and networks around the world.
It is reported that on October 27, 2019, US President Donald Trump announced that Al-Baghdadi had been eliminated during a special operation in Idlib Governorate, northern Syria.
